Summer is here and it’s HOT in the Hill Country! High temperatures and harsh sun rays can make it hard to relax in a room full of windows. Installing window film can increase the comfort of every room in your home and provide a variety of additional benefits, like the ones listed below.
1. UV Ray Protection
Window film from Spectrum Window Tinting can block up to 99% of the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. This is possible without significant darkening of the windows where it is applied. A range of color choices are available, from clear to neutral to earth tone hues, varying the amount of natural light you want to allow into your space. Window films block these rays and can reduce the fading of furniture or floors and also provide a level of skin and eye protection.
2. Cost Effective and High Return of Investment
Replacing the windows in your home is not always a necessity in order to decrease your energy costs. This is often a costly and time consuming investment as well. Installing window film in your home is a cost-effective solution with a quick return on your investment. Factors such as film selection, the size of your home and the age, condition and glass type of windows in the home will determine the total amount of savings you will enjoy.
3. Year Round Energy Efficiency
Two thirds of sunlight shining on double pane windows becomes heat, which in turn can quickly raise the temperature of your home. Installing solar window film can block up to 80% of the sun’s energy. During winter months, as much as 30% of your home’s heat escapes through windows. Window film also acts as a form of insulation. With window films you are able to reduce the strain on both your home’s cooling and heating systems by maintaining balanced temperatures year round.
4. Green Building
The installation of window films supports green building trends such as carbon reduction programs and natural daylighting. This also reduces the amount of materials discarded when tint is installed as an upgrade rather than replacing the windows entirely.
